Vice President Joe Biden and the Middle Class Task Force

The President created a Middle Class Task Force and asked his right hand man, Vice President Joe Biden, to lead it. The Task Force has one goal — to make sure the recovery doesnt just benefit the wealthy, like past expansions, but improves quality of life for the middle class.

The Barracuda Bites Back

I don’t know how anyone else feels about this, but i just can’t get enough Sarah Palin and those wacky Wassilla Hillbillies.
Palin just seems to be getting more and more desperate and defensive about her run for vice-president as seen in this segment of Countdown with Keith Olbermann. In this impromptu press conference upon her return to Alaska yesterday, Palin sounds frazzled and ready to cry. Keith has Margaret Carlson comment on the Palin press conference.

>Palin Only Visits "Pro-America" States

>According to the Washington Post, Gov. Sarah Palin “made a point of mentioning that she loved to visit the ‘pro-America’ areas of the country, of which North Carolina is one. No word on which states she views as unpatriotic.”

She also said she no longer watches the news.

Said Palin: “But yeah, sometimes you do get depressed watching what it is that they’re reporting and the spin and some of the distortion of what our message is and what we stand for. Sometimes that, that gets draining.”

>David Brooks: Sarah Palin " Represents A Fatal Cancer To The Republican Party"

>David Brooks spoke frankly about the presidential and vice presidential candidates Monday afternoon, calling Sarah Palin a “fatal cancer to the Republican party” but describing John McCain and Barack Obama as “the two best candidates we’ve had in a long time.”

In an interview with The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg at New York’s Le Cirque restaurant to unveil that magazine’s redesign, Brooks decried Palin’s anti-intellectualism and compared her to President Bush in that regard:

[Sarah Palin] represents a fatal cancer to the Republican party. When I first started in journalism, I worked at the National Review for Bill Buckley. And Buckley famously said he’d rather be ruled by the first 2,000 names in the Boston phone book than by the Harvard faculty. But he didn’t think those were the only two options. He thought it was important to have people on the conservative side who celebrated ideas, who celebrated learning. And his whole life was based on that, and that was also true for a lot of the other conservatives in the Reagan era. Reagan had an immense faith in the power of ideas. But there has been a counter, more populist tradition, which is not only to scorn liberal ideas but to scorn ideas entirely. And I’m afraid that Sarah Palin has those prejudices. I think President Bush has those prejudices.
Brooks praised Palin’s natural political talent, but said she is “absolutely not” ready to be president or vice president. He explained, “The more I follow politicians, the more I think experience matters, the ability to have a template of things in your mind that you can refer to on the spot, because believe me, once in office there’s no time to think or make decisions.”

The New York Times columnist also said that the “great virtue” of Palin’s counterpart, Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden, is that he is anything but a “yes man.”

“[Biden] can’t not say what he thinks,” Brooks remarked. “There’s no internal monitor, and for Barack Obama, that’s tremendously important to have a vice president who will be that way. Our current president doesn’t have anybody like that.”

Brooks also spent time praising Obama’s intellect and skills in social perception, telling two stories of his interactions with Obama that left him “dazzled”:…
